Fantasea Introduces CP-4 Housing for Nikon Digital Cameras

CP4 housing Fantasea Camera has introduced a new CP-4 digital housing dedicated to the Nikon Coolpix 4300 digital camera. The Coolpix and CP-4 combination is capable of producing enlargements up to 9"x 12". One hand operation of shutter release and zoom lens control makes it well-suited for watersports, boating, fishing, or backpacking, while protecting the camera from the inclement elements.

The housing is rated to a depth of 40m (130′), and there are two models, allowing photographers to choose to operate the camera on its auto functions, or by making control settings manually.

Using either the built-in flash or an accessory slave flash, the brilliant colors of the underwater world can be restored and captured. With the ability to switch from macro photography to wide angle with its zoom lens, the CP-4 and 4300 allow underwater photographers to capture many different types of photos.

The CP-4 Sport housing with three control buttons is anticipated to have a retail price of around $129. The CP-4 Pro, with nine controls to manually operate most of the controls needed for underwater photography, is slated to sell at $179.

The CP-4 was designed to offer unequaled protection for the camera. In the event of any accidents that cause water leakage, the purchase of the CP-4 includes free flood insurance premium for one year.
